The day was taken up by major traffic snafus.  Major accidents had highways shut down.  We spent hours in that stuff.  

"We'll exit here." 
"No, that exit is closed off." 
"We'll exit here." 
"No, everybody's trying to exit there. Just look at the line."
So we end up exiting many miles beyond where we need to be, and doubling back via neighborhood streets.  A trip that normally would take 45 minutes now took two hours.
And that was going.  Coming back was the same story.  The freeway was still shut down and on top of it, rush hour was starting.  Oy, what a nightmare.

Any how, we later caught the 9pm showing of the movie "Slumdog Millionaire."  Good movie, but it's not as good as "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."  It has a unique story line, culture exposure (learning value), different music, and it does have a more upbeat ending.
